We just had our dinner there this early evening. The food is just so so.. no wonder only 20% of the tables near windows were filled with guests even it is weekend.
The service is ok, but NEVER trust any recommendation..
Since it was our first time dining here, I and my gf were browsing the menu for quite a few seconds. While the antie heartily recommended a dish, some seafood with vege. I asked what it is, the antie said it is NOT IN MENU. Then we trusted, and said ok, we can order it...
after everything done, we were shocked when got the bill, other dishes like fish, squid just around $18-25 per dish. but the recommended one ... $68..
I asked the waitress, is it$68? She just replied coldly, 'yes'. no other words. I had no more question, paid, and left.
Well. no matter what the value of that is. You recommend sth, you should be a bit more honest. When guest asked abt detail,you just said it is NOT ON MENU. But when the bill came out, the price is triple of most of the other common dishes. No explaination given. I have to say, it is not a long-lasting promotion strategy.. since it's a bit DECEIVING.
Not mention that it was really a simple dish in ordinary size - mushroom plus vege and a little bit escallops. If you make it $30-$40, it's ok, but $68, and 'NOT on menu' is really kinda deceiving!
